Storyline

In Baltimore, Maryland, a torturer executes his victim, John Summers, after having found the Saudi women and two children he protected. When Gideon reads about Summers' suicide according to the press, he learns from his CIA-contact another counter-terrorism agent must have staged this top Middle East informant's death, and puts his profiling team on this strictly unofficial investigation for the murderous mole. The wounds show more then one torturer. Summers was working with Aaliyah Nadir, who turned informant after physical abuse by her husband Hassan, a Saudi diplomat who secretly finances terrorist organizations, and after a staged 'fatal' car accident lived with young son Faris and daughter Dalia in the US. Now Hassan is looking for them. CIA executive Bruno Hawks welcomes the BAU team at Langley, promising full cooperation, but the traitor probably works there too. The team has sixteen CIA suspects to examine while counseling the high-tech search for the now missing family. Then ... Written by KGF Vissers

Too Predictable
11 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After their best field agent is tortured and killed, since only that certain department in the CIA anti-terrorist unit knew about his whereabouts, it's apparent there is a mole in the group. The head of that unit calls in old friend, Gideon of the BAU, to help find out who is that mole. A Saudi woman and her two kids lives are in danger if the mole isn't found because the Arab women's husband - a bad guy - is out to kill her. So, the BAU team has two assignments: find the missing woman and her kids (whom the murdered agent was hiding and didn't divulge) and figure out who is the traitor.

Gideon and his group narrow the search quickly down to four people, so we see each of them profiled. Members of the BAU are assigned to follow and interrogate each of the suspects.

There are some twists and turns to keep the viewer off balance, but if you know this TV program and the PC bias it always has, it's not hard to figure out the traitor. I was hoping I was wrong, but the writers were predictable.
